"There was a girl. A beautiful girl surrounded by people.
Yet utterly alone.
Her brother, Chris, died sophomore year.
She spent all of her time
secluded with her family, or in the comfort of books.
I watched her for all of high school,
waiting for that perfect moment to talk to her, but that moment never came.
I watched as people gradually forgot about her. And she seemed content to disappear.
But not to me.
And although she didn't know it,
I saw the possibility of us."
